Justin Bieber Mobilizes Twitter Army, Floods Teenage Foe with 10,000+ Text Messages
Justin Bieber has 4.5 million Twitter followers – and this weekend we saw what happens when you get on Bieber’s bad side. He might tweet your phone number.
In a since-deleted Tweet, Bieber wrote “everyone call me 248-XXX-XXXX :) or text.” The number belongs to Kevin Kristopik, a Detroit teenage hacker who was messing with Bieber’s friend and successfully retrieved Bieber’s phone number. Here’s some more background:
It appears to be payback on some level for Kristopik hacking the Twitter account of a childhood friend of Justin’s named Ryan Butler, and using it to get Justin’s phone number. On July 27th, Kristopik tweeted “im the one who hacked ryan and got justins #.” When asked today on Twitter, “You hacked ryan, and now jb wants payback so he tweeted your number?” Kristopik replied, “Kinda.”
Needless to say, Kristopik was inundated with Bieber fans trying to get a hold of their dear leader.
